Brazilian Sexploitation
8 October 2005 | by Andre2010See all my reviews

I've seen this movie a long time ago in an obscure Brazilian movie cable channel, its a cheap exploitation movie, with lots of nudity and sex thrown into the movie for no reason at all, not that I'm against that, I'm no hypocrite, just that these are all blunt, poorly-done sex scenes, that range from masturbation (the mother in the bed), to pedophilia (when noronha allows an old man to " pay a visit" to his younger daughter in her own room), to the shocking situation of having a father using his own daughters as prostitutes. But this movie has a satirical message in its heart, for all i known, its about the crumbling and the decadence of a traditional family's core and overall family values in the modern days and the hypocrisy that lies underneath the family's institution, with some cries for sexual liberation, during a time when Brazil was under a repressive military dictatorship...Despite the clumsiness of its social commentary and the trashy sexual aspects, it provides some moments of weird comedy, like the erect penises the mother (simply referred as "Gorda"-Fat) paints in the bathroom walls (since noronha cant provide her with any pleasure no more), to the climatic scene where noronha (the father)completely loses his mind because of their daughters's throwaway sexual behavior and throws his puritanism out the window, forcing the girls to "work" for him, using their own house as a whorehouse! Lima Duarte's performance is what stands in this movie that doesn't belong to the sex department, and it surprised me, since I've only seen this actor playing more straight-edged, conventional characters on some Brazilian soap operas and Portuguese/Brazilian movies (like his magnificent role of Padre António Vieira on "Palavra e Utopia"). Here, he gives a maniacal portrait of a family man that starts the movie as an overprotective father and then crumbles into a complete pervert, shedding his false morals. Not a great movie, but if you like cheap trashy cinema, you might get a look outside the john waters realm...
